While this conference is intended to explain the principles of ICH Q10, it is not a conference that only tells you what ICH Q10 says. It is an event where you can learn the practicalities of how to implement Q10 based on real-life case studies. The conference will draw on the best industry and regulator contributors on this topic from both the United States and Europe. It will show you how senior management commitment and involvement is vital.Start Signature
